Dario Fo's Shows at MIT


The events have passed, and it has been an enormous success, in the first show people were even standing due to the incredible attendance (sorry, folks!). In the second event, we even had the honor to host another Nobel Prize, Franco Modigliani! What to say more? That people had such a fun, that we surely plan to repeat this kind of events in the future. Stay tuned!!

The Italian Association at MIT (MITALY),
